From the evidence of late a new underground—and rather poorly funded—cult has recently lost two new surrogates, Ronda and Leea. The supposed leader, Scott Barrett, has taken to posting notices on poles near and around public transport depots and stations.
Reflecting life in the cult, each one of the posters are made to look both unique and unassuming. Further to this, the message is scrawled, rather neatly, and not by that of the technological eye provided in the form of photocopiers.
Given that Ronda appears on each and every one of the posters while Leea makes it on to only a few, it would seem to suggest that the former is the more coveted of the two. In addition to this some of the notices make mention of a bank book. Included with each of these is the mobile phone number of the alleged father.
Who is this man trying to get in contact with these two girls? Doubts are high on whether or not he is a father in any sense out of the realm of cults and sects. Surely his inability to get in contact with these two girls should be indication enough that they want to have nothing to do with him. And can anything be made of the codeword "bank book"?
Or, it could just be a father who, having been denied custody and visitation rights to his two daughters, is seeking revenge and attempting to lure them out of their new life and possibly targets of an expected kidnapping.
